Nothing is as it seems…
Everything Isadora Starling wants is right there in front of her, but Toryn is off limits. He’s her best friend. She’s been denying her heart all these years, afraid to lose him.
Toryn Flame has a long past full of secrets. None of which he can share with Isadora, the only person who truly matters to him. She’s the one woman who has never shown a hint of lust toward him, but even if she did, pursuing her is forbidden.
That all changes when the family Isa doesn’t know decides it’s time to reveal who and what she is. After Isa’s recent attack, their motives are unclear.
His only goal is protecting Isa. Toryn will do everything in his power to keep her safe, including going against orders from his king.
Toryn’s only fear is losing Isa’s trust. Once the truth is revealed, can she forgive him for years of misdirection and omissions? Can she come to terms with a world she doesn’t want or know?

Pounding music flowed over Isadora Starling as she walked into her bar, Shenanigans. Only one thing was on her mind, finding someone who would take her home and rock her world. She was smoking hot and she knew it.
Taking note of every man whose head turned in her direction, she emphasized the already-seductive sway of her hips as she sashayed to the bar with purpose. As usual, her eyes kept drifting back to the only man in the place who made her mouth water. Unfortunately, her best friend was not on the menu.
She slid into a booth and turned toward her business partner, Lana, one of the few women she truly trusted.
Lana’s molten silver eyes landed on her. A smirk twisted her lips. “Back so soon?”
Isa lifted a shoulder in a shrug before stating, “I’m on a mission.”
Perusing the sultry make-up and her come-ravish-me outfit, Lana snorted. “I can see that. What are you drinking?”
“Double Grey Goose, straight up.”
“One of those nights?” There was a grimace on her face.
Isa responded with a one fingered salute before turning back to the crowd with the intention of finding a man.
Lana cut in with, “I still think you should drag him home and get each other out of your systems.”
By him, she meant Isa’s best friend, Toryn Flame. More than gorgeous, he was fucking beautiful, masculine perfection. His dazzling blue topaz eyes were lined in guyliner, not that his eyes needed any help attracting attention with his ten-mile long lashes. Silky black hair was teased up in a sexy tousle calling to her fingers. The man was a sex god, in snug leather pants and half-buttoned black silk shirt open far enough to display his sculpted chest and the beginning of washboard abs.
Forbidden, though she had a never-ending supply of fantasies starring Toryn. The current was her craving to lick every ridge of muscle on her way down to the golden zipper straining over an impressive bulge she wished she could ignore.
They were firmly stuck in the friend zone. He didn’t see her that way, and despite the fact he was sensuality walking, she wasn’t supposed to want him.
Frustrated, she turned back to Lana with a cold stare. “Have you forgotten he prefers men? Last time I checked,” she looked down and shook her tits for emphasis, “I have all the wrong parts. Besides, he’s my friend, my best friend and he,” she glanced back to watch Toryn tongue-fuck his boytoy, “is all over his man, Leon.”
One scarlet brow rose in challenge. “Bullshit, I’ve seen him take women home.”
“Please, when was the last time? Tiffany? And that rare occurrence was over a year ago.”
Lana’s mouth dropped open, “Oh my god, you are fucking blind, Isadora. He’s only with Leon to distract himself from you.” With a glare, Lana slid the vodka to her.
Isa would give anything for that to be the truth. Forcing the desperate sentiment from her mind, she took the shot in a single gulp, causing Lana to grimace.
Driving her point home, Isa nodded back to the two hottest men in the place. “Toryn is with Leon. Has been for nearly two months, which is some kind of record for him.”
Actually, they had been dating exactly seven weeks, which was damn near a miracle. Aside from Leon, he hadn’t been with a single person more than twice since she’d met him nearly ten years ago. Somehow his lack of commitment made her want him all the more. She always loved a challenge, and secretly wished she could be the one to snare him permanently.
Of course, if she told Lana she was counting the days Toryn stayed with Leon, it would prove her point. A point Isa was going to deny until her desire finally died.
With a devilish smirk, Lana shrugged. “He’d dump him for you in a heartbeat.”
A glance back at Toryn easily reminded her how wrong Lana was. Toryn was grinding his hips into Leon who was hungrily kissing down Toryn’s throat. They were too hot and heavy for their public display of sexual chemistry to merely be a distraction.
“Then why is he taking Leon home tonight? And don’t tell me he’s not. Do you see them?” Isadora pointed back at them with a wicked grin. It was a gorgeous sight.
Licking her lips and watching like every other woman, and most of the men, in the nearly anything goes bar, she nodded. “Oh, I do, but you don’t see the way he looks at you. Like he’s making love to you with his eyes. When you aren’t watching Toryn, he always stares at you.”
Lana filled the shot glass.
In all the years they’d been friends, Toryn had never made a move, so Lana was wrong, very depressingly wrong. Isa slammed back the second dose and glared back at Lana. “You’re full of shit. Pour me another.”
“I’m not. I still say you’re fucking blind,” Lana taunted as she refilled the glass. “If he wasn’t so hung up on you, I would make a move on him.”
Wait… what? Hung up on me? Yeah, might need to have her committed.
Isa took another glance at Toryn and Leon, then grinned at Lana. “If you can pry him from Leon, he’s all yours.”
Thankfully, Lana changed the subject. “Where’s Mike?”
Well-intentioned, maybe, but her new topic wasn’t much better. Isa downed the third shot before answering, “Don’t know. Don’t care. Of course it would be a hell of a lot easier to get laid if he were around.” He was her favorite fallback romp in the sack.
“You torture that poor man. If you’d let him, he’d fall in love with you.”
Which was exactly the reason she hadn’t called and was attempting to avoid him… though in desperate times…
Mentally shaking herself, she quipped, “We don’t work as a couple. Sure, explosive in bed, awesome on the dance floor, but that is where our good chemistry ends. We would drive each other batshit crazy—and I’m not talking about the scorch the sheets way—in a matter of days. Not to mention the fact Roxy hates my fucking guts.”
“Only because you’re stringing her brother along. Plus, she has a valid point. I’m still convinced you fell for Toryn years ago. Like two seconds after you met him.”
She was right, but Isa wasn’t going there. “Go to hell.”
“Only when you join me.”
Isa slid the empty glass at Lana and batted her lashes. “Anyone I should consider?”
With an accusatory glare, she answered, “Plenty of them. Except, don’t take the hot blond home.” She glanced down at the end of the bar for about the hundredth time since Isa sat down.
All Isa saw was the healthy fall of shiny blond hair, way too long and perfect to be on any man’s head.
“I don’t go for blonds.” Isa smirked before turning toward the crowd. Of its own accord, her gaze landed on Toryn, who winked at her.
Lana pulled her back to reality with bite in her tone. “Knowing you, you’ll take him home to spite me.”
Isa spun back around, her hands landing on the counter as her eyes narrowed. “I would not. When was the last time?”
Her eyes narrowed to slits. “Last week, when you took Reese home.”
“Oh,” she shrugged sheepishly, “that hardly counts. You didn’t warn me beforehand. If you had simply told me, I would have found someone else.” It was the truth, Isa never meant to hurt anyone, and especially not her friends. There had been plenty of other options. She honestly hadn’t realized Lana was interested.
“Why don’t I believe you?” she muttered. The question stung. Of course, her payback sucked. Lana turned around and hired the guy the very next day, even after Isa begged her not to.
“I’m not selfish, Lana. I wouldn’t do that to you,” she whined.
“Hmph,” Lana didn’t look convinced, but a smirk formed as she looked over Isa’s shoulder.
Isa fought back a smile as she felt Toryn’s approach. He had a presence she could feel and as much as she hated her weakness, it felt good to have him close. Toryn leaned his long hard body against hers.
Lana grinned as if her point was made.
One corner of Isa’s mouth lifted. “I would be more worried about Toryn taking Blondy home.”
“Bitch,” she gasped.
“Grey Goose?” Toryn licked his full lips as his brow cocked. “One of those nights, Isa?”
Her eyes nearly rolled out of her head, “Okay, everyone stop! I had a long day, and I’m horny as hell. It’s not like I’m driving home. No more judging. Just let me find a man for the night.”
The guy sitting next to her turned with a smile that chilled her blood. His deep blue eyes seemed wrong, his skin too pale, almost blue. She’d seen him before, but couldn’t place where.
Isa glared back. “Not you.”
Amusement danced through his eyes as they dropped to his drink with a chuckle.
Toryn grinned at Lana. “Two Loves and one is for my sweet Isadora.” His eyes held a mischievous sparkle.
Isa snorted. “Is that so?”
“Don’t argue,” he purred in a way that made her want to scratch her nails down his back while riding him into the night.
With a groan, she smiled back at Lana and tossed down enough cash to cover her vodka and the Loves, plus a generous tip. “Where’s Leon?”
Avoiding answering, Toryn quickly finished the drink and placed his empty glass with a purposeful thunk on the counter. “Let’s dance.”
She let the question slide and followed his lead after finishing her cocktail.
Maybe she had a bit too much, too fast, because the world tilted. Still, she managed to walk straight.
“Leon won’t be jealous?”
“Nope, he plans to join us soon.” She could feel his eyes caress down her body and back up. “He told me to tell you that you’re on fire tonight.”
“He always says that.”
He pulled her close and his lips grazed over her ear. “Only because it’s true.”
The warmth of his breath and rumble of his voice only heightened the ache between her legs. Such a damned tease. And if he didn’t do it with everyone, she might think he really felt something for her.

THE AUTHOR AND HER MUSICAL MUSE
What kind of impact does music have on your writing?
Depends how much in the zone I am. I can get to a point where nothing, not even music penetrates the zone. However music can influence my mood, in turn influence my writing. Again, depends on how much I’m paying attention to what’s going on outside my head.
There are a few songs that have inspired whole scenes. For instance, Halestorm’s “I Get Off” is responsible for a scene or two involving Hayden and Amethyst in Shadows of the Past.
Certain songs make me think of certain characters.
I do usually have music going in the background. I just throw everything into a giant playlist and sometimes switch songs if a song isn’t’ working with where I’m going, sometimes I even tune it out. Really, it depends on what I’m working on though.
I am a big music nerd though, so having it on usually helps keep me focused.

4.0 Rosebuds of Writing Rave
The writing sweeps the reader into a land of enchantment from start to end. Time moves at a rapid pace. The characters are constantly on the move taking the reader deeper and deeper into the story and its plot. This novel is around 40 chapters long. So you get your monies worth with this novel. The characters are very interesting and have a lot of equally interesting background that makes its way little by little throughout the story-line.
4.0 Romance Bling
The best way to describe the chemistry between the hero and heroine in this read is ELECTRIC!
These two set the pages on fire..
It has been LOVE from afar for several years.
But when the next step is taken, the reader better read somewhere safe, because wherever you are it will be a Rockin’!
Happy Reading, Anna

Awesome prequel and love story
I really enjoyed reading this love story about Marcus and Emily. Also this story helps you to learn what the Werewolf wars are truly all about. Well written and extremely entertaining to read. Even though this is a prequel story it’s also a self-contained story. It can be read in any order of the series but I think its best at the beginning before the others. There are some love’s that will make you risk it all to be together. I was given a free copy for an honest review.
(Donna – 5 Stars)
I love this series. I always wanted to know Marcus & Emily’s story. She always seemed so outgoing but quite, but being able to see how she dealt with not being allowed much of anything. I’m not sure most young girls would survive being held prisoner in their own home by their dad.
Marcus, I always liked him in the other books. But now I have more of a understanding of how much he risked to be with Emily. He could of left years ago and never looked back. Instead he choose to stay with the pack just to be close to her.
In the end it’s a short read but I loved getting to see the beginning before Devon’s story. How everything came about, and why they ended were they ended up. I recommend the whole series!

The Jared Effect
by Jake Malden
Jared Morgan dropped out of college, hitting the road with a Fender acoustic and a change of clothes. He’s been blowing in the wind ever since, getting by on short-term gigs and shorter-term loving.
Artist Vanessa picks him on the Interstate, enlisting him to help rescue her lovelorn companion Mallory from a doomed romance; but she has no idea just how far he’ll go to help.
Sasha steals him from her shy friend Libby at a funfair, setting the girls on course for a surprise that will rock them both. Hot teacher Sylvia re-acquaints herself with him at a music gig, and finds their one-time classroom roles shockingly reversed.
THE JARED EFFECT tells three stories of a charming long-haired rogue and the women whose lives he changes. And maybe of the woman who can change him in return. A laid-back joker with a mind infinitely raunchy and a cock permanently hard, he’s the kind of trouble it’s wise to steer clear of. But seriously-where would be the fun in that?
Jake Malden is an Erotic Author of The Jared Effect and many more.

When the bump and grind, wiggle and tickle, and knick knack on the patty wack comes to an end, don’t expect this wonderer and untamed soul to stick around for Jared Morgan is his own man and clearly searching for more. On he goes to the next place to seek out his pleasures.
Jared Morgan continues on in his hedonistic carefree lifestyle to the carnival ride of his life, where he meets two girls who are the exact opposite of each other. Or are they? He knows he will have to figure out a way to bring ‘sugar’ and ‘spice’ together to make a delectable treat, and he can’t wait to taste this delight.
For Jared, Sasha was direct in her approach, she knew what she wanted and was eager to taste the dirty deeds this carny had to give her. Libby had more of a sugar-coated approach and went slower, to slow, for Jared saw his bullseye and hit it… first! He might have caused a bit of a challenge between these two. Which really was his ultimate goal right?
Well don’t expect him to hang around to see your gushy girlie get your scream on he is already on to his next conquest! On he goes…

My Demon Trilogy
(My Decadent Demon, Book One)
By: Alicia Dawn and Nikita Jakz
This is the story of a spirited angel and her ornery, sarcastic demon’s reconnect long years after a devastating split. Older and wiser, they’re now more determined than ever to be together, despite the odds and obstacles piling up against them. Packed with angst-filled thrills, sensual seduction and decadent chemistry, theirs is the epitome of forbidden love, their story romantic
and edgy, dark and yet deliciously humorous.
Seraphina Orielle, an angel of divine fire and light, was also an oracle of foresight. Considered adolescent among her peers, she had yet to master her gift of precognition when her first vision came to pass; a captivating male whose destiny was intimately intertwined with her own. Yet he was not of angelic design. In fact, he was very far from it. Tragically, by the time Sera discovered this pivotal detail, he had already attained ownership of her heart.
But not her ability to flee…
A hundred years later and Cole Asteroth does whatever the hell he wants. When he’s not busy, that is, with ‘dirty deeds, done dirt cheap’ for his master. Ornery and sarcastic, he gets his kicks wreaking havoc in the human realm. Oh, and making very un-angelic women beg for his touch. Life is good…
Until fate finally catches up with him.
A few weak moments, one too many innocent visitations and the two are entangled all over again. But not as they had been before; things are much more complicated now. And Cole no longer possesses much in the way of faith and forgiveness.
As the estranged lovers struggle with what path to take, they quickly discover that destiny, too, is a reluctant second chance provider. As outside resistance and decadent captivity ensues, can their situation get any more exasperating?

Holed up in the underworld, Sera is given an up close and personal introduction to Cole’s demon half, their constant subjection to evil bringing out his darker side for some insatiable interactions. Both equally curious, his demon half sees her as a challenge to possess, while she regards him as merely a larger, lustier version of Cole to explore. Still, they need to find a more stable home, and the adventures they embark on to find such are nothing short of hilarious, though at the same time, downright dangerous.
My Demon Determined
(My Demon Trilogy, Book 2)
By: Alicia Dawn and Nikita Jakz
Never did Seraphina foresee herself taking refuge in the underworld. Cole, however, should have. Sera’s kin would never let her go and this was the one place their holier-than-thou feet couldn’t tread. Unfortunately, residing in a realm of vile depravity only adds to his problems. Now he must keep
Sera safe from not only her kind, but his as well. Even Cole’s demon is more volatile from the subjection to incessant evil.
When the opportunity arises to solve their dilemma, he jumps at it with claws swinging. But it’s a dangerous mission – and Sera’s riding shotgun. As deadly adventures unfold and all hope seems lost, Cole is forced to search inside himself. With a soul that’s riddled with more questions than answers, can he find the lifeline they need?

5 Roses – Creativity – Unique Writing
These Authors take you on an eventful ride into the unknown and uncharted territories full of emotional twists and humorous turns. The level of clarity they write is so enriched with distinct verbiage that you feel as if you’re really there in the moment, feeling every emotion, seeing every character and traveling in every adventure. The characters that are brought forth had me busting a gut, laughing out loud and cringing in fear. The series was in a whole, outrageously suspenseful, thrilling and emotionally captivating.
5 – Hearts – Soul Mates – Lovers
Seraphina Orielle is an angel, literally. Cole Astaroth is a Demon, literally. When these two get together heaven and hell will collide and no prisoners will be spared. They fight tooth and nail for their flourishing romance and their love builds to a crescendo. Seraphina is running from her kin who are trying to keep her from this unholy union but nothing and no one will keep her apart from her Demon. Cole is bound to his keeper yet trying to protect his Angel from all danger as he fights to hold on to this forbidden Love.
“My Prince, never will I leave you. Into the bowels of hell I will follow you, as long as I am by your side.” ~Serph
“Good, ’cause that’s exactly where we’re going.” ~Cole
5 – Lips – Luscious Lust
Whoa, holy smoking hot hellish nights, to say these charms were erotic would be an understatement! My toes curled, my thighs tingled, my mind was feverish and I had to go out and buy some chap stick from licking my lips the whole way through. This Demon gives it to his Angel like hell is on fire and heaven is just a cloud away. Cole and Seraphina know how to bump and grind, get down and dirty, hop on the scotch, and play knick, knack, and paddywack very very well. LOL! Hang on to your undies ladies, these two lead you into an inferno of naughty wicked deeds yet you can feel their emotional connection as well in each touch and kiss they share.
“You delightfully sneaky Demon. You, Cole, are and always will be, my insatiable demon.”
Never had he taken her so hard. Blessed be, it was a good hard. A heavenly hard. An I’ll-be-sore-for-days-and-will-give-thanks-for-every-tender-moment-of-it hard.
“The sound of your heart beating is a balm to my soul.”
“Sera..” he hissed as her teeth grazed his length. “Ah Luv… your mouth is sinful.”
“I’ve been caged for far too long, I need some me-time to pay with my nice little treat.”
“I love you, my angel. I can’t wait to see forever with you.”
Yes these clever little charms were exactly what I need to extend my reading genre.
I am a very happy camper right now for finding a new wickedly devilish demon BBF. Cole was everything I needed in a badboy lover. Seraphina was so divine in her naughty and nice sugar a spice eloquence. I loved this book couple. I loved the numerous characters these to Authors brought to our world. You will have to pick this up for I cannot say anymore other than… OMG!! Caleb!!
I am hoping these Authors will read this and know that I am eagerly awaiting a story from a new Vampire Prince Caleb Alarik!
Thank You so much Alicia Dawn and Nikita Jakz!!

foothills of the Smoky Mountains, the beautiful town of Paradise is the perfect
place to raise a family, have dinner at the local diner…and chase a ruthless
DEA Agent dead-set on getting vengeance for his sister’s death. When his
sources tell him that the drug dealer he’s been searching for will soon be
setting up a distribution center in the seemingly innocent town of Paradise, he
moves in for the kill.
counting on, however, was falling in love with gorgeous Harmony McKinnon – the
ex-wife of the man he was determined to eliminate.
never believed she’d find love again….not after the horrors she lived through
with her ex-husband. When she meets secretive Jacob Stone and soon falls
in love, she never expected that her life would be in danger again…or that
the man she’d come to trust would betray her.
understand his motives? Can Harmony trust him in spite of the past?
Will they have their happily ever after?
it seems in the sleepy, little town of Paradise, Tennessee!
second book in the Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters Series,
but is a stand-alone novel (165,000 words) that can be easily read without
reading the first book.
O’Rourke is the alter ego of two best friends who bonded over their passion for
romantic fiction and erotica. Born and raised in the southern United States,
one lives near Louisville, Kentucky, while the other resides in Atlanta,
Georgia. Formerly an accountant and a
chemist, they are now overworked, stay-at-home moms who adore their children,
their husbands…and writing about love in every way possible.
Currently focusing on their Passion in Paradise series, they love to write wildly intense
romantica stories that have multiple characters, but each book focuses on one
specific couple that will ALWAYS have a happy ending…eventually! The Passion in Paradise series follows the
lives of four sisters, who love and infuriate each other – and the men who love
them! Each book is a stand-alone and
does NOT require the reader to have read the prior books.
I was introduced to Hard As Stone and the Passion in Paradise series by the author, Sarah O’Rourke. I was asked about reading and giving an honest review. I agreed and here we are! Now I can honestly say that I AM GLAD I READ Cain’s Salvation and Hard As Stone!!!!
I absolutely LOVE this series and am…
Chomping at the bit for the next novel in he series to come out!!!
From start to end this novel was wonderful!!! I laughed, I cried, and Jake had me SWOONING!!! This novel can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the Passion in Paradise Series. Though I would recommend reading it as a series. The characters are so life-like, exciting, and a total hoot! My favorite character is Aunt Orla. She is just so funny!!!! She keeps me in stitches!!!
The story-line contains sensitive material. But the characters stand strong loving and supporting one another through good times and bad.
Whether you read as a stand-alone or as a series, the authors make it clear the background of the characters. So if read Cain’s Salvation or not, the reader has an understanding of the make-up of each character and what they bring to the series.
Look for little details while reading. These little clues will give you a sneak peek into future reads in the series…
Even though there were a few grammar issues, this was a truly great read!!! So make sure and add this to your reading list. Then laugh, love, and cry with the McKinnon sisters. I promise the men in this novel are so, so, so!!!!!! SWOON-WORTHY!!!!!
Ok, if you are an emotional reader like I am then make sure and have your tissues handy. The chapters that effected me the most were 10, 11, 33, 34, 54 and 55.
Sisters Harmony and Honor have both had traumatic experiences with the opposite sex. Yet, as mentioned before it is through the love and support of family (blood related and so close they are family) that helps them to survive. What these two have been through will shatter your heart. Just know that they both have trusting, loving, and strong men to love and protect them now.
However the tears will not last for long. Soon Aunt Orla will have you giggling, while the men will have you swooning… ❤
5.0 Romance Raves
The novel begins with Jake’s POV. He is in the I Don’t Care Cafe watching Harmony work and thinking about the first time that he saw her and talked to her at the cafe. Jake describes his business in Paradise, lets readers know a bit of his past and how he looks. He is one tall and yummy drink of water. Just looking at this fine creation will make woman’s mouths go dry. He is just that HOT!!! With his long hair, tattoo sleeve and his Harley he rides into town on…
Read how one man and one woman who thought love was not for them find that special connection. It may take a while for the two to realize their love for one another, but the adventure to get there is sweet and sexy. The McKinnon sisters can be feisty when they want to be. In Jake’s case, that attracts him to Harmony even more. Thus also revs up their relationship. And Jake REALLY knows how to please a woman too! I even sent some scenes to my hubs… he told me they were so naughty…
Will Harmony learn to trust Jake? Will Jake get his Happily Ever After? Shhh… It’s a secret. You will have to read and find that answer for yourself. All I will say is that these men….
really do, SIZZLE up the pages ♨♨♨
I know when I finished reading my Kindle was HOT to the touch!!! So you have been warned. Keep tissues and cold water handy. You are gonna need both…
Happy Reading and Sexy Dreaming,
Look for a review on Cain’s Salvation coming NEXT…
